Winter has come full blast to the City of Pittsburgh. The Old Soldier just got back from Armand’s in Little Italy. It’s around two in the afternoon. I sat at the bar at the front window and watched Liberty Avenue. The sky was overcast and snow flurries drifted down. Nothing was sticking. But the forecast says the city will get maybe as much as six inches tonight and the high tomorrow (the high) will be 19 degrees.
Winter has definitely arrived in Pittsburgh.
But that’s okay. The Old Soldier will be fine. My little apartment is warm and I have plenty of food and beer. A lot of people are not as fortunate as I am. I never want to forget that.
I won’t be going to karaoke at Nico’s in Little Italy this Saturday. I thought I would wait until the following Saturday. So, there may not be another report on karaoke as performance art for another couple of weeks.
I’ve already begun the process of putting money into my PayPal account so that I can pay Anna Bayes and Heather Kinnane whose sexy flash fiction stories will appear this month in the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette. Both Anna and Heather have had several stories published by me. If you are a writer and you want to know what it takes to get published (and paid) in The Gazette, study their erotic stories.
This magazine is known for its erotic flash fiction.
Are you a writer? I’d like to publish your flash fiction. The submissions tab is in the sidebar. I’m looking for writers with a professional attitude and who have made a serious commitment to learning the craft of writing flash fiction. This magazine is a paying market.
This is the Old Soldier reporting from near the University of Pittsburgh in the winter time.
